Dear Friends, Clients and Subscribers,
It is currently 5 degrees Fahrenheit here today. A good day to stay inside and write something!
As I said in my last newsletter: ‘2020: An Astrological View,’ Sunday, January 12th would be the exact point of a generational shift. It would be something that will be in effect until 2053. Yes, the long-awaited Saturn/Pluto conjunction.
First of all, I do want to thank everyone who gave me some positive feedback for that article, and even some cash donations. I also look forward to doing the Astrological Readings for those of you who want to investigate how these major Astrological alignments of this year are likely to affect you.
This article is a brief update on the omens or ‘signs of the times’ occurring at the time of this conjunction.
As I predicted in my article, I said that I had fears of an earthquake (as we saw in Puerto Rico, and another earth change, the volcano in the Phillipines), as well as something affecting Great Britain (Harry and Meghan’s withdrawal from full status within the Royal Family), and something resonant with the previous Saturn/Pluto conjunction at the start of World War I, (The U.S./Iran escalations of conflict).
Now, I am not predicting that we are necessarily entering World War III, but I do want to look Astrologically/symbolically at the two of these events that human free-will choice can influence, as there is not much that we can presently do about the occurrence of earthquakes or volcanos. Although, clearly, there is some on-going lessons for the people of Puerto Rico and the American Government’s response of compassionate aid, or dramatic lack of, or insufficiency of, that aid and compassion.
Looking first at the situation in the U.K.. I stated in the last newsletter that Britain has the Sun and three other placements in Capricorn, and that the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn would likely create an effect there. Now, as I had no idea what Harry and Meghan were brewing behind the scenes, I surmised that it might have something to do with Brexit, which could still be the case.
An intense Plutonian scrutiny into the traditions of British identity and role in the world has been going on for some time now, as Pluto entered her 10th House of ‘Role in the World’ in 2013. And Saturn entered in 2018.
With the exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction occurring in that house, however, we have witnessed a surprise, secretly brewing (Plutonian) challenge to the epitome of British tradition and identity with the current drama for the Royal Family.
Admittedly, re-consideration of the British population’s relationship to their Monarchy has been going on for some time. Many of you know that I addressed this in my book: ‘Charles & Diana: The Inside Story: An Astrological-Karmic View.’
Indeed, if Harry did not have a mother as rebellious towards the Royal Family as Diana was, it is highly doubtful that he would have taken this dramatically brave move, something which he has been obviously secretly nursing for some time.
The point of the Astrological Chart for Britain which is most obviously being triggered by this Saturn/Pluto conjunction is their Aries Ascendant, their Self-Image of Themselves, at 22 degrees of Aries.
Here is part of what Hilarion says about Aries Rising:
The sign Aries rising will tend, due to its rulership by Mars, to give to the developing self-image a coloring of action and courageousness. The person will see himself as quick to respond to situations, particularly to emergencies, and as being something of a leader or a model for others to emulate. (End Quote)
Obviously, this fiery, courageousness and their image of themselves as a leader to be emulated is something that enabled them to plant their flag over half of the Globe, along with a sense of racial entitlement
Pluto, and now Saturn, moving into tension (squaring) with that self-image is relatable to their struggle with the European Union, immigration, and their ability to have the free Aries-like will to control their own role and destiny.
Obviously, their need to accept the limits of that Aries willful desire to engage with and control all confronting forces forcing changes to their identity and traditions, including innate racist tendencies, has now had to undergo a ‘surprise attack,’ especially as a large part of Harry and Meghan’s discontent has been the racially motivated attacks against Meghan. The Daily Mail printing a headline with the words: ‘Straight Outta Compton’ in relation to Meghan.
Of course, there are Astrological Aspects hitting the charts of Harry and Meghan, notably Meghan’s Ascendant at 24 degrees of Cancer in direct opposition to the Saturn/Pluto conjunction. I know, however, that most of you are not likely to be avid ‘Royal Watchers,’ and I am trying to keep this article somewhat shorter, so I will end this discussion here. Suffice it to say, however, celebrity has become the mythological, symbolical replacements for the Gods and Goddesses and mythologies of the past, and their dramas do often represent movements occurring in the collective psyche.
But now, the really scary stuff. I am, again, not predicting, although I admit I am fearful, that in the future, historians and Astrologers alike will look back at the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand at the outbreak of World War I in 1914, and the assassination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, both occurring during Saturn/Pluto conjunctions, as parallel events in history.
I would say that both events symbolize a challenge to the then, and now, status of national identities and their relationships with each other.
The question is: Has humanity sufficiently evolved to where we can undertake the profound Plutonian death/rebirth of previous identifications required without going into a long, protracted World War III?
I would say in ending here, that I see it as no accident that the World War I movie ‘1917’ was given prominent acclaim in the Academy Award nominations on the day after the day of the exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction.
I have not yet seen the movie, but I tend to feel that all of the world’s leaders should be required to sit in the U.N. General Assembly together and watch this movie.
Again, if you would like me to look at how these alignments may be triggering your own ‘exams’ on your Astrological curriculum you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
